Accessibility

The Ontario Disability Act (Bill 125) requires that Municipalities prepare an accessibility plan annually and consult with persons with disabilities. The accessibility plan shall address the identification, prevention and removal of barriers to persons with disabilities. This is to be accomplished through the by-laws, policies, programs, practices and services of the Municipality.

Energy Management & Planning

Conservation is a key part of the Province’s effort to lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and build a clean, reliable, modern energy system. As a result, public agencies are now required to:
•    Report their annual energy use and GHG emissions to the Ministry of Energy as of July 1, 2013
•    Develop five-year energy conservation and demand management (CDM) plans by July 1, 2014
